Jeremy Jones takes on Capitol Hill to Protect Our Winters

Team CLIF BAR athlete Jeremy Jones recently took his passion for Big Mountain Snowboarding to a smaller, but much more important hill—Capital Hill– to act as a witness for climate change and “protect the places he loves to play.”

Jeremy’s passion for snowboarding gives him the ability to see firsthand the effect of climate change in some of the hardest-to-reach places on the planet, and compelled him to start Protect Our Winters (POW), a foundation dedicated to reducing climate change’s effects on the “places we play.” Together with his sponsor, CLIF BAR, Jeremy created a short video documenting his recent trip to Washington, DC.
